Price changes at the National Land Survey of Finland as of 1 January 2024

The National Land Survey of Finland will change its pricing as of 1 January 2024. The prices will be increased due to the increase in the general level of costs, which has been faster than expected in 2023. Another factor behind the change of apartment ownership and registration prices is that the transfer of lists of shares seems to focus towards the end of the transitional period more than expected.

The prices of the National Land Survey of Finland (NLS) are cost prices. This means that they cover the associated costs but do not generate any profit. These prices will remain valid for one or two years, depending on the decree on charges applied.

Cadastral survey charges

Cadastral survey charges will increase by an average of 8.4 per cent. The decree on charges that became valid in the beginning of 2023 was decreed for 2023–2024. However, the cost price value required by the regulations could not be reached with the charges listed in the decree, and a new decree was compiled for 2024.

The most common cadastral procedure is the parcelling of an unseparated parcel of 0.1–1 hectare, which will cost €1,320 as of 1 January 2024. The price increase is €100.
